Two members of the Pen forum, TheOnyx and Jeer, have apparently finally consummated their love…
Originally written by TheOnyx:
I was awoken this morning by a phone call to my cell phone at 8am. FedEx needed to confirm my name and address and mentioned that they were attempting to deliver a perishable package… namely, flowers.
I hung up and went back to sleep. I woke up an hour later wondering if I had dreamed the earlier call. I checked my phone and it verified that the call had indeed happened.
I asked my girlfriend about it over lunch today. She swore adamantly that it was not her sending the flowers. Once I finally believed her, I sat and thought about who might send me flowers:
- My most resent ex: While possible, this would be uncharacteristic of her.
- The company that installed my new air conditioning system a last week (and consequently set off a fire sprinkler while welding a copper pipe without a heat shield, thus flooding part of my condo as well as part of the one underneath and the garage below that): I figured they might be trying to play nice after the massive fuck-up.
- Your mom: She’s such a softie.
Suddenly, I remembered the E-mail conversation:
Subject: Get Lamp
A documentary about text adventure!
I love lamp.
You love dick.
You keep hoping for our “Happily Ever After”, but you never do anything about it.
How about I FTD some flowers for you?
Would that make you slip off your chair, sweetheart?
It’s like you don’t even know me.
Well-played, good sir. Well-played, indeed.
This of course is not surprising from the guy that is best known around here for testicles with smiley faces
